When is a Christmas cake not a cake but a dumpling?

My effort at a seasonal fruitcake, baked in medium and small loaf tins was not entirely successful. 

Having soaked the fruit in wine I should have drained off all the liquid before adding the fruit to the mix.  The batter, as seen above, resulted in being a bit on the 'sloppy' side.

Never mind.... the cake is a bit moist to the point of being more of a dumpling than something that leaves crumbs on the plate.

What to do?  Heat up a slice in the microwave and serve with custard.
